Career Day

Students join the research labs of the DBM to complete an academic education that prepares them for their professional future. During the time at the Department they attend lectures, seminar series, and learn the skills that are required for working in their respective research areas.

Working in a University environment, students interact mostly with scientists whose experience are mostly aquired in an academic environment as well. There are, however, many other options and potential working areas open to people with a PhD in Biology that students are most of the time not aware of or do not consider due to lack of information. In order to offer them the possibility to discuss about their future professional possibilities and to learn skills to prepare them for the work market, the DBM PhD Club organizes a Career Day aiming to focus on the post-graduation careers of the young researchers by providing students with practical knowledge through a combination of presentations and workshops.
